I have been on solodyn for 9 days for mild-mod rosacea with acne. I am on finacea and night and aczone in the am that I have been on for almost 2 months. It seems as if the small bumps are increasing instead of going away with the solodyn. Does it take a few weeks to improve and does it get worse before it gets better? Thanks!
Rosacea (sometimes referred to as acne rosacea) is a chronic skin condition that makes your face turn red. It may also cause swelling and skin sores that look like acne. Symptoms of rosacea commonly come and go in cycles, often triggered by substances and situations that make the face flush. There is no cure.
Minocycline (Solodyn) is an oral antibiotic commonly used to reduce the inflammation associated with acne rosacea. It may be prescribed for up to 3 months.
Finacea (azelaic acid) is also effective for mild inflammatory rosacea, applied twice daily to affected areas.
It is quite common to experience a temporary worsening of acne rosacea when starting a new medicine.
There is no cure for rosacea but it can be controlled with treatments. In many patients it is a matter of trial and error finding the right combination that work for you.
